We spent our last day of birding along Achiote Rd, a location that can be good for some of the less common Caribbean slope birds though we didn't have a ton of luck with them. Jose, our guide for the trip apparently had some conflict arise (I'm not totally sure it wasn't simply another group that he'd double-booked) and arranged for a colleague of his, a man named Ygua to guide us the last day.
A Yellow-headed Caracara perched right above our heads as we started the first trail of the day.
We had good numbers of trogons, and the first Bicolored Antbird and White-flanked Antwrens for most of the people on the trip. Spot-crowned Antvireos were fairly common.
Song Wrens were beatboxing away in the underbrush. This pair popped up and did some sort of mutual preening for a minute or so.
We spent at least an hour watching hawks from a sloped coffee field. Swallow-tailed kites were quite common as they started their northward migration.
We saw a couple Black-hawks which our guide tried unsuccessfully to turn into a Crane Hawk.
A young King Vulture appeared and disappeared before I could get most of the group on it.
Gray-headed Kites are an interesting contrast to Swallow-tails.
We saw our only poison dart frog of the trip here as well.
We chased a calling White-tailed Trogon around and found a small group of Gray-headed Tanagers that didn't turn into an antswarm and soon started walking along the road. There were a few birds here and there, as well as decent numbers of Cracker Butterflies.
Black-cheeked woodpeckers were working together on a nest hole or granary, or maybe just communally exploring a bug-riddled snag.
One of our main targets though, Spot-crowned Barbet went unseen however, aside from one on a mural at our open-aired restaurant lunch.
